    2020 NFL Draft Pick 242 Jonathan Garvin EDGE Miami

    Overview
    Traits-based edge defender capable of playing 4-3 end or 3-4 rush linebacker. Garvin's strong 2018 was followed up with inconsistent effort and an inability to stamp his presence on games with much consistency. He gains depth upfield quickly and is fairly natural at defeating the punch and flipping the corner. Pressures are nice, but sack-makers get paid and that won't happen unless he cranks up the effort and plays to his traits and potential. Garvin has Day 2 talent, but may not go until Day 3. However, there might be gold to mine if a coach can get it out of him.

    Strengths

    First three upfield steps gain space in race to the turn
    Rushes with good forward lean
    Works to half-man attack consistently
    Intriguing instincts and hand usage to grease the edge and access the pocket
    Closing burst to walk down scrambling quarterbacks
    Looks lean but can pop and stop a pulling guard
    Uses length to separate and find tackle opportunities
    Clicks physicality switch when he needs to
    Long strides are rangy in pursuit
    Has grown into long frame, but still has room for more

    Weaknesses

    Smooth frame lacks definition and weight room receipts
    Urgency and consistent explosiveness are missing from his rush
    Not enough secondary effort when early rush attempt stalls
    Inside counter is missing from his rush plan
    Seemed to be coasting and getting by at times in 2019
    Additional play strength is needed
    Will give ground at the point of attack
    Gets jostled and knocked off-balance

    Answers the edge depth question, nice prospect. I like the pick we have the coaches to develop him into solid player.

    Wow did he ever. The deepest wide receiver class ever and the biggest need and they don't take ONE!

    Love may end up being a good pick. I like fortifying the OL. But the picks in rounds 2 and 3 really boggle my mind.

    I think Gute figured out he made a mistake with trading up for Love and watched the top WR's and ILB'S get picked and crapped himself and just couldn't recover from the hole he got the Packers in.

    I'd imagine they wanted to take a WR round 2 but the board for away from them and they couldn't or didn't want to trade up again. Could have seen them taking Mims if he hadn't gone 3 picks earlier.

    Garvin becomes the first 2020 pick to sign his contract with the Packers
